and taxes. my financial needs are high. in this economy, none of us can afford to lose our jobs. >> next speaker. >> ion a store located in the marina, and i am here to represent district 2. first of all, he does have a good voice. we are not multimillionaire's. we do not have high-paid lobbyists. i appreciate when the supervisors listen. we also do not have a communications director on full- time express. we are small, hard working businesses. we really are, and my speech is to talk about how benevolent we are as small business owners. there are a couple of supervisors i hope will listen to how challenging it is to be able to compete with not only this chain store but also the perspective of the other big chain stores potentially coming. i feel it is appropriate to give a few examples as to how benevolent. of the gives thousands of dollars to the organization and rigid bobb -- bobby give thousands of dollars to the organization paws, and they have taken donations from pet food express fear reagan -- pet food express. >> thank you very much. next speaker please. >> i have listened to the
us to overcome many of the challenges that we have faced, as you will hear throughout the program. part of what makes today so sweet is it was not easy to get here. it was really hard. there were a lot of bumps on the road to this fantastic moment, many things we could not have anticipated, many things we did not know. throughout it, the mayor has always supported it, help us to solve the problems we face. i think the biggest part of the to be to him is the fact that this is the first leed building -- the environmental certification -- the first leed hospital in california to be built. i think that really speaks to his commitment to environmental issues at a time, 12 years ago, when it was not so popular, and it seemed like a quixotic kind of adventure to be talking about it. he said it was real. he was right. now people talk about it as a day to day economic reality. mr. mayor? >> thank you, doctor, and thank you all for taking the time to be here today. to begin with, i would like to recognize a couple of people. one person whose spirit is here, but whose sisters took the time t
this will work, and i like the idea of starting with the schools. hopefully, it would give us some resources. also, it gives us an opportunity to integrate into the other strategies of school improvement we are developing, so i am very supportive of this and hopefully will be following through. >> i want to make decisions i think will help as well. we're having a tendency part of the questions that are asked when it comes to any of the reporting that is happening, so they are asking questions about attendance and when parents are engaged, they are also being asked about attendance. often one student will cut five departments, and we have been working collaborative lay -- collaborative flav -- collaboratively around shared data. you have a more collaborative association. if there is the case across the board that reaches all of the departments with one person reporting, we are hoping this is going to help with that. the last point is we want to set a goal for ourselves, and we are not only looking at how we reduce truancy but how we move students who have been chronically absent and moving th
, we're in the touching those. >> okay. >> there's no bag alternatively that is used for that. when you go to the grocery store, in -- this goes to the earlier comment i made about the alternative bag industry is not being allowed to enter the markets because forces are suppressing that. the produce bag when you go to get your vegetables and fruit at the grocery store, you take the plastic bag off the roller, we can't touch those either, because the cost of that hasn't come to a place where the alternative bag is as cheap, where we like it to be. >> okay. thank you. >> i wanted to thank you for doing this so the five cents stays with the retailer. not really for the money, making money but for the bookkeeping, the tracking. it is just another -- another time-consuming thing. and i know the small businesses really appreciate that. >> it is morlinnier like i said and we get it. we're happy to see the chamber being warm to this and newsom who was a supporter of this idea too. we're bringing people who had not been not ness -- not ness cecily of the same wave length earlier, this has been a
back to us through the online survey, and you can find that again on the sfpuc website. we have a banner there that will take you directly to the information about the community benefits program. with that, i would like to turn it over to bonita to talk about our definition of community benefits. >> good afternoon. i'm very excited to be here, and i would like to add my congratulations to the general manager, t juliet ellis, a friend of mine, and someone we hold in high esteem. i think it was a brilliant decision to uphold this position or expand its response ability to really consolidate your action, and we want to thank the commission for the commitment to developing community benefits. you have a wide range of programs, and we will be touching upon them as we go through the definition. we were not able to find a universal definition of community benefits, not surprisingly. however, based on all the research we conducted, and we put the definition here at this part of the program, because it was informed by the many discussions we have as stakeholder outreach, the research we
retail to come in and do so for us or else that building will remain vacant. there is literally no strategy citywide or even within our districts that is helping answer this question. i can tell you, with the termination of redevelopment's jurisdiction in the fillmore and western addition which has been completely inundated with formula retail, once those businesses go belly-up, because of the cheer size of those, you would only obligate us to return to the formula retail and keep that domino effect going forward. that's what's pertinent to the discussion before us is a requirement that we have a more modernized assessment on how to deal with these issues because case by case they'll continue to come before us and we're not, i think, answering the problem that is before us. president chiu: colleagues, any additional discussion? at this time, i'd like to ask the project sponsor if you could step up for your presentation. you have up to 10 minutes for your presentation to be divided with whoever you wish. >> my name is sean moore, i'm counsel for pet food express and i'm going to
. hopefully, we can work for equity for all. help us do that, particularly by keeping in mind what you do with your plan. [applause] >> [speaking spanish] >> good evening. i am a mother and a representative of monroe elementary. we are concerned about the immersion. we want you to analyze and see it could affect us the fleet if that program is not implemented correctly. >> [speaking spanish] [applause] >> good evening. my name is from a cup. i have two children at monroe. five years is not enough, if after that you are not going to keep up with the program and everything is going to go to waste. it is not fair that she is doing english and spanish exams. for what? that effort is not going to be taken into account if you take away the immersion programs at the middle schools. >> [speaking spanish] >> i have children in monroe. i represent many voices. we had a meeting on friday. we do not want to get our kids into a one-year immersion. that is not strong enough. it is mainly a spanish class. also, the security on the neighborhood -- some of the schools where kids would be sent, we have see
that we at samhsa are stressing is that every person who has a mental health issue or substance use issue needs to also get a good physical health assessment. one of the things we know about the misuse of alcohol or drugs is that it does have an effect on the organic integrity of the body. so you may get liver disease, you may get gastritis, you may get heart disease, you're at greater risks for various infections like hepatitis c or hiv. and we want to make sure that anybody who is on the course of recovery has as much information as possible. there was one quote i read recently and a guy says, "i spent all this time using alcohol and drugs and shooting up, etc., etc., so i finally get into treatment only to discover that i have hepatitis c." so we want to have that as an integral part because that becomes part of the cultural dynamic. and especially from a religious point of view, because you start feeling that you've been visited by god in a negative way because after all, you finally get your life on a proper course, and boom, you've got to deal with either hiv or you've got to deal w
not just pull off? >> they could just pull off. that would be useful. if we found there was not a signal, we could that can read it manually. the meter itself records. that will not change. it would cost money to get us meters modified, to take that feature off. >> what is automated is the reporting, not necessarily the meter. that is the difference, i think. >> i suspect the transmitter is somewhat water -- you know -- what is the word and looking for? >> watertight. water-resistant. >> that is it. >> colleagues, and the questions? ok, hearing and seeing none, any public comment? >> we have one speaker card. commissioner crowley: 90. -- thank you. >> i was almost asleep, but he will bring up when he said good faith effort. we have been talking for the last year-and-a-half. good faith effort does not mean jobs for my people in the community. it is not local hiring. i have heard that word for 40 years. that was when we had redevelopment time for our community, like you had in 1972 the expression of the sewage plant. that word was used. i want you all to delete that
connected to it. they will actually embrace it. i think it will be a good thing for all of us. >> if you are walking in the tenderloin, you'll be able to see this piece that is in front of the original [inaudible] which is a restaurant that has a lot of history. there are exciting projects on market streets. there are two gorgeous minerals as well as six different installations. they are making huge figures that they will be able to see. >> there is a definite level of appropriateness of stuff i am using. a lot of businesses died in 2009. >> i think i'm trying to deal with the maximum out of space possible. that is surging right now. everyone is doing what they can with what they have. sometimes that introduces a lot of interesting things. there is nothing that inspires quite like this. >> the project benefits both the property owner, the neighborhood, and the artists, all of whom have been effected by the economic downturn. >> this is brand new work. >> we chose artists that had a diverse array of media from home video to coulter, paintings. >> when people walk around these neighborhood
ann from the department of public health. >> thank you. the department is requesting that we use the state contract low of the city boilerplate, and this will put us in compliance with sb 785. this legislation, in regards to delivery of specialty mental health services for foster care children, and it mandates the use of standardized contracts statewide, so this would be for children that are placed out of county, and i have our director of children, youth, and families for the system of care for community behavioral health services. thank you. >> supervisors, this should give you an idea about the extent of the need. 534 children in foster care are facing -- are placed in san francisco. with the largest percentage placed in alameda county and san mateo counties. the reason they are placed in those counties is because half of them are placed with relatives, and the remaining in foster homes. they all actually have a right and need to access and services when they have the need. right now, it is not easy to enter contracts for services with them, so the change is to create more ti
and recommendations on the use of finance district. >> this resolution is adopted. >> item 23 as an ordinance allowing the appeals commission to send all packing material to the mayor's office of disability. >> this is passed on the first reading. >> it is a resolution approving supplement by comcast cable communications against the city. >> this is adopted. we have a number of special items today. i would like to take up this item and then moved to the pet food express item during yen -- pet food express item. could you please call the 10 items? >> the following special orders were authorized pursuant and approved on august 10 and also in communication with the clerk. the items are the public hearing of persons interested in the determination of exemption for property located here. you want me to read item 33 for your item 36. -- item 33 is through item 36. >> it is my understanding that both parties have off for continuous through september 28. i would like to ask that we do that. if we could do that without objection, all of these items will be continued until the 28 of this month. if we could call

project manager, joe connors. thank you and john predecessor stole away from us, michael lane. thank you, michael, wherever you are. lastly, my personal reflection on this building. this building, to me, is truly a monument to the tremendous capacity of generosity in the heart of sentences go. the voters of san francisco in their great willingness to support this facility will always have this hospital as a sign of their willingness to help those most in need. these neighborhoods that surround this facility, i think, consider laguna honda at their private treasure. we really do look at this hospital as our own. we love this hospital. we have great care and great love for the residents of this hospital. on behalf of the neighboring residents, to all of the current residents of the hospital, this is for you. we are thrilled we were able to do this for you. thank you, everyone.

the radical philosophies that have been used to fight geps these acts. my goal here is two fold. first, to reach out to my brothers and sisters of different faiths to sxhan and share my love of my religion and second to reach out to my muslim brothers and sisters around the world to explain my love of america. allow me to begin by telling you my story. i came america by boat when i was 17 years old. we sailed into new york harbor on a sunny and cold winter day in 1965, three days before christmas. i remember seeing the stat u of liberty for the first time. i remember admiring her colors >> i was born in dwat to egyptian parents. my father was a religious father. he was active promoting understanding between different religions. coming from a country that was mostly muslim, i found this country without religion, even anti-religious. in the 1960's, religion was found to be passe even a crutch for the simple minded. this was shocking to me, extraordinary. i thought this place sure is different. i received my bachelor's degree, married and held several different jobs. i am a normal america
concern that legislation might be used for renovation and maintenance of landmark properties only. these three historic buildings. last year, the golden gate theater required, and we did $500,000 worth of maintenance and improvements on that building alone. but also we use the money for production support and to bring bigger and better production to the city of san francisco which is our essential mission. we do propose a handful of exceptions to the proposed legislation that would allow for the net proceedings to be applied to one, pay down the loan if the lender requires such payment in the loan agreement, two, for the maintenance and renovation of different historic buildings that are owned or leased by the same owner, and finally, that the funds be used to assist businesses that are located within the historic building. for example, it could be used to support our production and theater business. again, thank you for listening. supervisor maxwell: i'm going to ask planning to have comments on this. thank you. >> my name is george williams and i'm speaking on behalf of spur. i
, and also the merging history's coming together. what would we look like if we carry our history with us? all of the merging of cultures, reflected in our address? i am thinking of my own history with early europeans coming in and intermixing with native cultures. the one thing i would like people to take away from after seeing my work is a sense of wonder and who we are as americans. that we are really these beautiful mixes of people and we should really be looking backwards at who we are. i think we are all kind of historians in our own life, and there are great presidents behind us -- president behind us that could give us insight into who we are. >> oliver road trip on her website. check at often. new experiences will be added after every stop. [music] hello, i'm ivette torres and welcome to another edition of "the road to recovery." today we will be talking about diversity issues within the addiction and recovery field. joining us in our panel today are dr. h. westley clark, director, center for substance abuse treatment, substance abuse and mental health services administration, u.
's a passive recreational use on the embarcadero and i think everyone i know of who lives on the east side of the city wants more recreation on the embarcadero. it would have a calming effect. it's a sport where people of all ages can participate. it's not difficult to learn how to play bocce ball. you can be 4 years old or 90 years old. it would a -- have a calming effect on the area. we envision office tournaments, families playing together, neighbors playing together. visitors even playing together. currently just in herman plaza in the median strip located between the two embarcadero roadways are very busy and management has received complaints from farmers market patrons and building tenants about the noise of the skate boarders and the so-called music. i have encountered this first hand so -- i see my time is up but i would definitely support and my neighborhood network supports the bocce ball courts. thank you. >> -- supervisor maxwell: any further public comment on this item? seeing none, then public comment is closed. planning department? would you please come forward? oh, rec and
be that -- for example, right now we provide power to the airport tenants. the airport tenants pay us lower than they would pay pg&e, but pay us more than it costs us to generate the power. we use those extra proceeds to finance other programs. prop. 26 would say it cannot -- you cannot charge more than it costs you to generate your power. it would not allow government agencies to generate any income to be used for other projects. it would be a major impact on general fund to the city, all of the programs we have been doing using hetchy money. president crowley: it sounds like prop 16 revisited. >> only municipally owned utilities, not on investor-owned utilities. i believe the board of supervisors will have a item introduced to have the city go on record against the proposition. president crowley: i noticed also you have now -- commissioner moran: i noticed you have also scheduled the allocations. that is well in advance of the end of the year deadline. it does strike me that may take more than one meeting. i do not know if that is the way it is planned on there. i think it shows a decision as
collum is leading the charge he joins us live. are you ready? >> we are ready. we are going in on a motion to dismiss the federal government's file. we expect to win. the judge isn't going to rule tomorrow more likely in a few days. but we are going to have our oral arguments for a couple of hours. >> greta: what are the main issues? >> the individual mandate is first. standing on that is important for states as well as individuals. we have s, the 20 states that are involved, we also have the national federation of independent business and two individuals. one of the great debates tomorrow will be over whether or not the states have the standing right to be here in a cause of action to represent their people or their interests in the question of whether or not the federal government can mandate an individual who is just sitting in front of their television set having to buy a health insurance policy or pay a penalty? >> greta: in the state of virginia they have a different statute which says that you can require people of virginia to buy health care insurance. they got past that standing.
everybody and thank you for joining us it is tuesday september 14th. investors are once again piling back into financial stocks. some analysts say that new capital requirements from the basil committee on banking supervision can actually boost the chance for banks to bring back those dividends once again and that has been bullish for the overall market's, yet some traders are still pretty cautious. caution is always in the air. i am happy that you mentioned the rally that has been happening in the market. keep in mind that president obama came out on friday talking about the details of his economic plan plus you had john baner who is a republican in congress talking about actually agreeing with some tax hikes even though some senators say they will. anything that brings certainty to the market causes a rally. that has definitely been a factor. in other news pacific gas and electric sets up a $100 billion fund for residents of san bruno california in the neighborhood where a gas pipeline exploded last week and households could receive up to $50,000 depending on the extent of the damage to
or the maximum, but it was like $1.50 per trip, using our current route, and an estimate of how many students would be waived from the fee and how many would be subjected to it. i think it was close to $1 million per year. this would make a significant but would not be the answer, i guess. commissioner: i just have a couple of things. first, i am a little chagrined because we have been talking about making major cuts to the transportation budget for a year, and there are so few things left that we know we have to cut. we will sadly have to make more cuts. but i would like to see a proposal that makes significant cuts to the general education, and it might look so draconian to me that i might not support it, but i still think that, so i just put that out there for a response, and my other concern about charging people, i mean i've always been in favor of that, particularly with the technology. we actually have some net gain. we have recently looked at the maps that show the stops for various schools and the number representing the number of kids, and there were way too many, so i do not care h
're in a special use district of any kind or redevelopment area of any kind? >> i don't believe we developed there anymore. >> because the thing that comes up for me commissioners, is -- is the underserved nature of the location. the fact that it doesn't have grocery stores convenient grocery stores, that it does not have convenient. i -- i mean -- >> can i make a correction to that. it does. saveway is right in the area. >> three blocks. >> three blocks away. >> because -- for me public transportation, i mean i can just imagine what it is for an elder person relying on public transportation to take them back and for the across town and something that is within walking distance. >> that will be different, though, once the legislation is enacted in terms of -- of access to -- to a -- you know a pharmaceutical because -- if this legislation is enacted then saferway will no longer be able to sell pharmaceuticals. it would be back to a --, a walgreen's or a -- or a independent drugstore. >> okay, thank you. >> what about -- what about some kind of financial ceiling on gross receipts? like -- sto
, we found a lot of parents who are not using the correct address. i want to let you know that if you are using the address of the relative or a fake address to get one over on the system, it is not going to work. a lot of parents were very upset with us for their children being pulled out of those schools and being placed at other schools, but in some cases that are out of district. they are not allowed to go to school in our district. i want to tell the audience because that was brought up this evening. we are guarding against that. we have hired full-time investigators. i know a lot of people are using addresses of relatives. we are knocking on doors. you can be sure that we are trying to eliminate the gaming of the system. i appreciate everyone who is here tonight and taking an interest in their child's attendance. we have had ongoing student assignment meetings. this has been an ongoing process. i feel we have had a very open process here. it has been televised. all the results have been on our website. we have had multiple meetings on a very regular basis with almost full board
the language that i'm going to propose. in the future the city may decide to use this space that will require the removal of the courts and the donor agrees to remove the courts and restore the lawn to its original condition at its own expense if that should be the case. additional language states that the department of rec and parks is authorized to accept the gifts on behalf of the city on condition that the donor will remove the courts and restore the lawn to its original condition at its own expense if in the future the city decides to use the space in a different manner. there have been a number of meetings between the rec and park department and a variety of neighborhood leaders to talk about the possibility of other uses. from my perspective, i certainly support this bocce ball area, but if it turns out in the future after a good planning process that there are other things that we ought to do, i and my colleagues are very open to that. so with that, i know we have a representative from rec and park to talk a little bit more broadly about that i just wanted to frame the conversation. >

would be featured on the food network channel, they would come and film a show on us. so that was really a great pat on the back. so i think any neighborhood in this city has the ability to turn around and to go forward such as lush lounge has done and we also have a person here in the room that's been of great assistance to us, chris schulman. about three years ago when he was with the office of the mayor in economic development, he came in and began to bring all of the businesses together. he was like a foot soldier. when you run a business, you don't have time to meet the neighbors and get to know everybody so he was a great ambassador of bringing, i believe, our corridor together. with his help and bar owners coming together, we have on our own, i have a special foot patrol on friday and saturday nights, hired out of our pockets to make sure our streets are safe and clean and there's no trouble. finally, i think the commissioners on this board have a lot to do and in common with what i do as we listen to people talk and talk and talk. so whenever you'd like to move on to another job,
a look at what used to be their neighborhood. >> fear, crying, laughter, shock. you have to laugh because -- >> denise shepherd's family lived on the block for 18 years. their house is gone. >> look, our house is gone, but not the hearth where we hung our christmas stockings. that gives us some peace, if you can call it that. >> pg&e admitted it took an hour and 47 minutes to shut the gas off after the rupture. they are looking into why. politicians want to know why gas pipelines, like the one in san bru bruno, went along the san andrees fault. >> he escaped in a car that is pliserred from the heat. he and his wife raised five kids in crestmoor. he wants to sift through the ashes. >> it courteous. map a couple diamonds laying in there somewhere of the. >> as he plapz to rebuild, he said offers of help are overwhelming. >> i get to a point where i realize how people are helping me. >> financial and emotional help so many people need. city, state and federal leaders here tonight urged everyone here to reach out for mental health services. representative jackie speer said p grkg&e will cover
to vandalism into a masterpiece. let us take a look. >> part of me has so much compassion for other graffiti artists. i understand why they are doing what they do. for me, it was something that was so hard to get out of. the lifestyle in general. j and tagging is addicting. i used to be on these routes. i have compassion for these guys. a lot of these guys are super talented. i am just trying to find the median to still be involved but still do my thing as an artist and work with the city, like we are doing. we are doing this wall in a collaboration with the san francisco arts commission. basically what they are doing is trying to get rid of some of the tags and by putting up murals. they are cooking up graffiti artists with business owners. today, we are trying to get a lot of this wall buffed out and covered it. then we will spray on some sketches of what we are going to do. the rain is coming tomorrow. it should be here for a few days. we want others to know that there are artists working on this wall. the owner of this building, she has had to pay a lot of money to keep on paying over th
all of the criteria that the airport used in their evaluation, host is the winning bidder and we do not question that. we recommend that you approve this legislation. commissioner avalos: great. thank you. so we are about in terms of the incidents for the first year of the lease we are about $200,000 over the mag? >> yes. based on projected sales for the five different locations. both host and airport staff has looked at the projections and agreed they will most likely pay the percentage rent not the magazine commissioner avalos: i found it interesting in the report -- mags. commissioner avalos: i found it interesting in the report, one of the primary factors being considered, that there are a lot of bids that turned out to be not able to get to the mag. i'm wondering how common that was in the past just for my own information. >> i believe that that may have been part of why this is separated out from the original package that came to you. airport staff who looks at these mags and traffic and projected sales i think we are just not comfortable with the concepts that were originally
, who are frequently using our hospital services that this would cover. the atmosphere that we create and the alcohol that is sold in restaurants and bars in this city would help to these services. that is what this fee really does. many of you have heard from alcohol lobbying firms, who have been drumming up opposition to this. i believe they have profiled each one of us, the restaurants and bars that we might go to or the community we may be a part of, bars that may be shown at the brink of collapse due to this. it is more hyperbole. less than 1% drop in consumer buying of alcohol and about 50 jobs a year across the city, which is very, very negron ginobili compared to the -- jeglidgeable. i think it is worth recognizing and not the kind of doom and gloom that has come from the alcohol industry. i know there has been a great deal of pressure that all of us have faced. lastly, we are asked as supervisors to do much more, to be innovative, to look at uncovering every stone to deal with our deficit, to deal with the difficulties of alcohol in our streets. this is one solution i hope yo
. if that is true, i want jerry to tell us whether or not he agrees with that assessment. >> do you agree with that? >> jonathan said something that i absolutely agree with. that is the media reflects what the public wants. in my view, the media, in general, feed a voracious appetite for vengeance by an informed public. often influenced by fear, prejudice, and ignorance. i think one of the reasons criminal defense lawyers argued so poorly is people do not understand the source of crime. they want simple, quick responses to a complicated long- term solutions. you cannot fight crime by doing what the governor is doing, cutting social services and building new prisons. [applause] you do not have to be a rocket scientist to understand. all of us who have been involved in the criminal-justice system know where people who commit crimes come from. they are poor people, people of color, victims of abuse, the mentally ill, people with substance abuse problems. there are the people that fall through the cracks of society. but that is the public read what the public wants and the public is understandably afra

employees. we are no longer enrolling new employers. for us, we are at the status quo. we have a month left. we're working hard to get our folks ready for the transition. we hope to not have to do that, but we are preparing for pretty bad news. today, final push. the mayor will talk a little bit about the program as well. >> thanks, and thank you all very much for taking the time to be here. i actually just left senator feinstein, who has been a champion of this program. the reference that not to impress but to impress upon you that we need all the friends we can get all the champions we can get to extend this program. 3820 families are being served by this program. these are families, many of which -- close to, in fact, 1000 of these families were on welfare, and now pulled out of welfare and have the dignity of a paycheck and the dignity that comes with a paycheck. when they come back home to feed their family. that is not a rhetorical line. that is not a line just to place some politics. that is quite literal. this program, arguably, is the most successful stimulus program in the united
model for her students, for her colleagues and for all of us, so it's my pleasure to introduce you to ms. jennifer man. >> i'm very honored to receive this award today, and i would like to especially thank my colleague and good friend, laura garcia castro for recognizing and nominating me. i've been teaching at spring valley school -- science school for 18 years now and i feel very fortunate to be a part of a wonderful school with a great staff. we all place a high emphasis on making sure our students are aware of the importance of intelligent behaviors and critical thinking. students learn that there's a lot of things they can do to become smarter, such as asking lots of questions, being open minded, and admitting mistakes. they also know that because everyone is different, that we may not all like the same things or learn the same way which means that if one way doesn't work for us in understanding something, we might want to approach it a different way. thus, staying persistent and not giving up, as well as finding alternatives will eventually lead our students to a path of self-disco
